Phil, thanks again for another wonderful binocular article. This past weekend I was at Everglades National Park and spent time observing in Auriga with my 10x42 Bushnells. AWESOME!!!

Wow, that is outstanding.
I just wish I'd read this before I went out last night!
I've just started looking for stuff with binos recently. My wife likes to do it with me, and it's a lot of fun.

So far we've only seen M31, M41, M42/43, M44 and M45. We'll definitely check out the goodies in Auriga. Thanks for the great article! I'm gonna bookmark it now.
